Will Kanye West Face Attempted Robbery Charge in Alleged Attack on Paparazzi?
On Friday, July 19, 2013, Kanye West was allegedly involved in an incident at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). During the incident, the king of narcissism reportedly attempted to take a paparazzi’s camera, who was trying to take photos of the self-reported genius. Kanye was leaving the airport and was being followed and harassed by a paparazzo / photographer known as Dano. Although Kanye did ask him to stop following him and asking him questions, Dano continued to follow and harass him. As a result, a scuffle began as Kanye attempted to grab his camera. In addition, he reportedly tried to punch the photographer.
Dano was injured in the scuffle, apparently injuring his hip (that’s what you get for messing with the king of HIP hop). Los Angeles Police and paramedics were called to the scene, but Kanye (aka Yeezus) left the scene before they arrived. After the incident, police launched a battery investigation to determine what happened. Kanye West, a 36-year-old rapper and entertainer could be charged with “attempted robbery” which is a considered to be felony in the state of California.
According to TMZ, the photographer Dano was involved in a similar incident in 2007. Singer Britney Spears attacked his car with an umbrella when she got fed up with him following her.
Will Kanye West face attempted robbery charges in the attack on the paparazzi, or will the judge see this as harassment on the part of the photographer? Will he continue running up on the stage at award shows in an attempt to draw attention to some important issue, but secretly only trying to draw attention to himself? Who knows?
Whatever the result of this legal situation, Kanye will continue to be the world’s biggest asshole.
